Why green? And why so bright?
Green is the accepted standard color for bicycle lanes because it provides for minimal confusion with other colors. For example, red means no parking and blue signifies accessible parking. The bright green color aligns with the point of the lanes, namely to call out the potential for cars and bikes to be operating in the same area.
